The reports state that lead levels for all samples are within permissible limits

The reports state that lead levels for all samples are within permissible limits. The second batch of 16 samples were tested not only for lead and flavour enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG), but also for other safety parameters like metal contaminants, crop contaminants and toxic substances, that are applicable to instant noodles as a proprietary food.

Maggi noodles was banned by national food regulator (FSSAI) in June last year on allegations of more than permissible lead and traces of MSG.

The brand returned to stores in November after clearing multiple mandatory lab tests.
